ABSTRACT
The article presents ways to care for calla lilies. It cites several factors to consider regarding the water requirements of these plants. According to the article, these plants bask in anything from full sun to partial shade. It is inferred that new color-soaked hybrids of calla lilies prefer a well-drained, porous soil.
